The post Test Training package is a great way to refresh your biking skills. The DSA (Driving Standards Agency the people who set and conduct the tests) have in conjunction with the Motorcycle Industry devised a package known as the Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS).

The scheme is intended to benefit all bike riders who have a full motorcycle licence, irrespective to the size of bike, or the experience level of the rider. You will not need to take a test or even any training if your skills are assessed as satisfactory. You will also earn discounts on your insurance as a result.

Observation, Planning, Anticipation, Attitude, Control and Concentration all play a big part in making the complete rider a better and safer rider.
